[ audience aws ] really. and i had to explain to her before we went to the set. and i went, "um, daddy's gonna -- um." you know it is. and it's very important to me that this is done correctly. i mean, i was throw up nervous about doing this. it's really important that it's done well. and not about being good or famous or anything like that, but just doing the subject right. and so i said to her, "uh uh." and she goes, "daddy." i showed her pictures and she said, "oh, she's just more comfortable being a woman."
